Please join us for a guided tour of ‘Eduardo Chillida’ led by Lea Schäfer, curator of the current Chillida retrospective ‘Eduardo Chillida. Architect of the Void’ at Museum Wiesbaden.
Chillida is highly revered as a relentless innovator who challenged the conventions of sculpture through a questioning of form, material and space. Conceived as a celebration of the artist’s mastery of materials, the presentation is the first of its kind in the Zurich gallery and showcases Chillida’s wide-ranging and pioneering practice through a presentation of rarely exhibited works. The selection of significant artworks, which spans over a timeline of 50 years, includes small- and large-scale sculptures in steel, chamotte clay, granite and alabaster, as well as drawings, engravings and his Gravitaciones (Gravitations).
The tour will be conducted in German.
